Participate in this story slam event where participants get 5 minutes to tell their own stories of the German-American experience after the Armistice – November 11, 1918. Share your own thoughts or family stories about the end of WWI, homecomings, and the aftermath.

Discussion led by Dr. Geoff Howes (BGSU, retired) and Michael McMaster (Wood Co. Historical Museum Education Coordinator).

Many German-Americans supported Germany’s war aims at first, but fully backed the United States once entering WWI.

Following the story-slam, enjoy German food and fellowship or take a self-guided tour of the exhibit Over There! Send Word, the Wood County Boys are Coming – WWI and Wood County 1914-1918.

$5 suggested donation, WCHS Members FREE.
